at the debate the other night. trying to he's been saying for years. >> when governor romney tried to give us his business advice about the economy and said that we should let detroit go bankrupt, we said, no thanks, we're not going to take that advice. we've reignited an auto industry that's on top of the world. >> he wasn't having a shining moment at the debate. watch this. >> everybody here, incredible professionals, they are such great friends and they just perform flawlely, night after night i can't always say the same. >> so he joked about his performance but he's going hard on the policies. is that a winning formula, marg? >> absolutely. that's why the president is usually net favorable. even new polls that have come out in the last couple of days have shown romney doing better, even leading obama, he's still net favorable. that kind of looseness that you're seeing from the president on the campaign trail, we're just simply not going to get from romney. that's just not the kind of candidate that he is. when you take all of that together combined with mitt romney who has put himself in
of the country's most important groups of voters. tomorrow night won't be the first time romney and the president have come face-to-face, but you may be surprised at how seldom they've actually met. and the former speaker of the house, nancy pelosi, she's here in "the situation room" live this hour. i'll ask her about the democrats' chances of taking back control of the house of representatives. i'm wolf blitzer. your in "the situation room." >>> we're down to just 35 days until the actual presidential election exactly five weeks from today. here's where the race may be decided. we're getting our first look inside the debate hall over at the university of denver. barack obama and mitt romney, they are getting ready to face-off tomorrow night. and as cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta discovered, it will be one of the very two times the two men have actually met in person. jim is joining us live from littleton, colorado. what's the latest on this particular score, jim? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you right now that ann romney is about to take the stage behind me. she's going
the other night. and governor romney did a good job, for what he needed to do. but i also we the next day on to fact checker and looked at the reality of what they both said. and there was discrepancies on both sides. you know, more discrepancies on romney's side. so i don't trust governor romney. i trust the president a lot more than i trust governor romney. >> okay. we're going to talk a lot more about this in the story, moira, but i'll ask you right now, that 47% remark that mitt romney made with that secretly recorded videotape, he came out and said i didn't mean that at all. it was a mistake. never mind. don't pay attention to that. does that resonate for you? >> i'm so glad you asked that question, carol, because in the past 14 months my husband was unemployed. he just got a temp job tuesday. and we were dependent on that unemployment so that we wouldn't lose our house. we don't have health care, so we had to go to social services. you know, there was a lot of things that we needed help on. so i was part of that 47%, but i'm telling you, i was not a victim. and i was ticked off at g

into wednesday night, people had not answered that second question. romney had not made the sale. i think what you saw wednesday night was the first opportunity that the average person had to see these two candidates head-to-head for an extended period of time, and when they saw that, guess who won? romney won. he looked presidential, he had confidence, he had a plan. he was confident in that plan. the presidt was in a situation where he couldn't defend the last four years. maybe that's not because he is not a good debater. we know he is a good debater. he couldn't defend the last four years because you can't defend it. you can't defend not getting the job done. i think that's -- this has changed. yesterday's one last thing, candy. yesterday we had 150,000 doors being knocked on in ohio. we have great energy. the governor is going to win the state. it's going to be close. he is going to win. >> governor strickland, without sort of getting into more debate performance and how the president did or didn't do, do you think that mitt romney perceived as the winner by a large margin picks up steam n

romney should have some heavy verbal ammunition to use in the debate tomorrow night. for his part, the president will remain steadfast that everything is going according to plan. >> four years ago i said i'd end the war in iraq, i did. i said we're going to wind down the war in afghanistan. we are. and while a twin tower -- while a new tower rises above the new york skyline, al-qaeda is on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> bill: but according to the american commander in afghanistan, al-qaeda fighters are again causing trouble in that country and the terror group might even be responsible for murdering ambassador stevens. talking points believes many voters are still persuadable. that support for the president is thin among some independents. recent rasmussen poll says 42% of those backing the president are locked in stone. that gives the governor some room tomorrow night. but he needs to be surgical in making his points. that's a memo. now for the top story, is u.s. foreign policy in trouble? joining us from boston, fox news military analyst, colonel david hunt a

after night. i can't always say the same. >> meanwhile, the romney campaign is on the offense, taking friday's september jobs report which the white house touts as a triumph and turning that against the president. listen. >> this economy is not doing well and the fact that you have a white house celebrating an unemployment rate of 7.8% with 23 million americans out of work or unemployed or underemployed, tells you a lot about the failure of this administration's policies. >> this, of course, leading up to thursday's first and only vice presidential debate between joe biden and paul ryan. democratic congressman tim ryan joins us this morning from the crucial swing state of ohio where an appeals court decided on friday that early voting will be reinstated for the three days that lead up to election day. nice to see you. thank you for taking with us. >> good to be with you. >> appreciate that. let's talk a gallup poll to start with. you can see in the time since the debate, it looks as if mitt romney has gained points. president obama has lost points. i think you guys have the wrong poll
